The Adventurer

Just because they’re adventurous doesn’t mean your friends don’t enjoy a bit of pampering from time to time. Enter The Ritz-Carlton Outdoor Blanket by Pretty Rugged, with its faux white mink on one side and waterproof navy fabric on the other, that’s perfect for cozying up in the great outdoors. The blanket rolls tightly for easy packing and adds extra comfort for camping or sets the scene for a glamorous picnic.

Henry David Thoreau once said, “It’s not what you look at that matters. It’s what you see.” Travel inspires on many levels, and bringing memories home is a terrific way to keep that inspiration alive.
